Cape Coral Florida School System
Cape Coral School system consists of virtual schools, charter schools, private schools and public school that provide the School Choice Program. The school system allows parents to choose their three preferred schools. If their first selection is full, their children will be enrolled in their second or possibly the third option. Parents are allowed to move their kids to the first choice if space becomes available later.
The main goal of this school system is to enable children to remain in one school up to the highest grade, even if they move to a different part of Cape Coral or their current location experiences a change in growth.
